Got bored over the weekend and decided to rattle can my pistol. This is the first time I sprayed any AR15's and I didn't practice beforehand. I think it turned out well.

Specs:
DPMS slickside upper
MAS 7.5" bbl
GLT Commander muzzle device
Guntech 7" slim keymod rail
Rainier BCG
Raptor CH
MBUS Pros
Bushnell TRS-25 red dot
Thorsdon kit
BCM Mod3 grip
DPMS LPK

Still need to get a light and a handstop for the front.

That looks really good especially done with spray cans instead of a hvlp gun. I really like the pattern. I wish I had the guts to do a camo pattern but I just went with solid colors for now

I just finished mine a few days ago. Well I'm getting a better free float tube and I gotta spray that but I'm basically finished.

The receivers are Duracoat Tactical Woodland TAN flat
The CAA saddle is Duracoat Magpul FDE but I had to send them a magpul FDE part to colormatch it because Duracoats stock Magpul FDE is very far off from the actual FDE color.
Handgaurds are FDE
Krink Muzzlebrake is Woodland TAN
BUIS are Woodland TAN
The Mag is FDE but for some reason in the picture it looks like a different color but in person it's a perfect match.

Used a HVLP spray gun and the finish comes out so perfectly smooth that it looks like factory finish

That's the upper I was looking at getting, OP.

Any problems with yours? What ammo have you put through it?

Have had no issues running 193/Tula.

Be warned, this upper is heavy as heck. Otherwise, works great.
